What to Expect When You Get Dentures

Although receiving Fort Pierce dentures may be a simple process, there are still some challenges that you’ll need to face after getting them. For instance, the initial few weeks of using this dental device may be uncomfortable, irritating, and inconvenient. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about the pain and discomfort while your mouth gradually adjusts to your dentures.

Dentures are an excellent tooth replacement option if you’ve lost some or all of your teeth. However, this new equipment requires you to endure unpleasant oral sensations. Here is what happens to your mouth when you acquire dentures to help you adjust to these problems.

What Happens When You Get Dentures?

You’ll Have Trouble Speaking or Communicating

You might experience speaking issues after receiving your dentures for the first few weeks. Although this may be an issue initially, after a few months of wearing them, you’ll be able to speak normally. Wearing dentures should be a slow and steady process because it will affect your daily functions and activities.  

You’ll Experience Eating Difficulties

For the first several days after receiving your dentures, you’ll experience eating difficulties. The most common issue patients have had trouble chewing and swallowing the food. After getting your dentures, we suggest you eat soft meals for the first several days, such as soup, egg dishes, and soft fruits. You can also cut the food into bite-sized pieces to make it easier to eat and digest.  

Mouth Sores

Don’t be alarmed if you get mouth sores after getting your new dentures since this is a regular occurrence. Mouth sores can be painful and challenging for patients who have just received braces or dentures. If you feel any uncomfortable spots over the next few days, be sure to let your dentist know so that they can prescribe the appropriate medicine.
